Just a few weeks ago I was in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, and had the privilege of speaking at the Alberta Home Education Association Convention. My keynote talks received a great response as families swarmed the resource tables afterward. I found that people in Canada are hungry for answers! That’s why we’re so excited about our new outreach, Answers in Genesis–Canada, and our new online store designed for Canadians. The store just launched earlier this week.
Answers in Genesis supporters in Canada can celebrate! This launch of the AiG–Canada online store means Canadians will be able to order resources in Canadian dollars without any cross-border shipping charges added.
After calculating the estimated amount of resources Canadians will order during AiG Canada’s first year (by analyzing the high volume of resources already being supplied to Canadians in previous years), it was determined that the initial warehouse set up would simply not be sufficient to process the large number of orders they will likely receive.
This meant a need for increased manpower and a new location to facilitate orders. By God’s grace, John and Melanie Janssen from Ontario have agreed to coordinate the Canadian warehouse and webstore. This is a huge undertaking, but after much prayer and consideration, John (an air traffic controller at Toronto’s Pearson Airport) and Melanie (homeschooling mother of seven children) have decided they want to serve in this way to help launch AiG–Canada.
The resource prices for books, DVDs, curriculum, VBS, and other AiG resources have been carefully assigned so as not to be overly expensive considering the US exchange rate (currently around 20%). And our popular creation and biblical worldview magazine, Answers, has special pricing as well. Faith-building AiG materials can now be sourced at very reasonable prices all across Canada!
We anticipate great growth for AiG–Canada and ask you to partner with us by introducing your friends and family to AiG resources and letting them know that the AiG ministry is in Canada. You can learn more and sign up to receive their newsletter at AnswersinGenesis.org/newsletters or follow them on Facebook at Facebook.com/AnswersCanada.
I encourage you to visit the brand-new AiG Canada store at AnswersinGenesis.ca/store. Canadian residents receive 15% off their first order with the code SAVE15 until July 31, 2018. Please note: your computer may require you to change to “Canada,” if that is not automatically selected. Simply change your country from the drop-down menu in the right hand upper corner of the website.
And I’ll be speaking twice in Canada this month, this time in Ontario. Join me and AiG executive director Calvin Smith at Canada Christian College in Toronto, Ontario, May 19–21, 2018, for six faith-building sessions or join me at Morningstar Christian Fellowship in Scarborough, Ontario, May 20, 2018. You can learn more on the events page of our website.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
